A Cliche to Clinch your Sales
Here’s a quick one, I posted an article on LinkedIn this morning and would be glad if you would check it out and ping with your comments, please!!
Oh, I know it has been awhile on here but you know my love is permanently with you all.
Right back at ya, Love you all!
There are two kinds of people around, those who listen and those who talk. Many of us want to be the talkers.
But if we can imagine how much people want to talk and the power of the listener, many would rather learn to listen more.
Listening is not natural to many despite the biological fact that humans possess two ears and a mouth.
A skill critical for a listener is the acumen for questioning, with the right questions, you audit the rambling of a talker and get to the heart of the matter.
Aside the fact that you know more about people and their vanities, it is believed that the one who questions holds the answer.
How else would you want to build leadership skill in a group situation? By asking purpose-driven questions.
You don’t want to be a crocodile fellow in a group, small ears and a big mouth. But you will want to be an influencer, a shoulder to cry on, a pillar of help. So, you should start to get the right answers from people.
Crouched on this couch
Flipping through the pages
The lines blurred
I can only see your smiles
…I am still waiting
Flicking through the channels
The pixels blurred
I can only see your shadows
I am still waiting
Waiting for that guttural voice
Calling my name again
Waiting for those strong fingers
Ruffling my hairs
Waiting to be aroused
By the aroma of ‘suya’ in the dead of the night
Waiting, just waiting
To be called a son again!
This Story captures my growing with a father in the sales profession.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be called a son by a caring man.
I hope to be one someday.
